Sec 46, Gurgaon, will soon have a library of its own

One of the oldest RWAs in the city, it sure knows what its residents want. And it is working hard to set it up as soon as possible.

Sec 46, Gurgaon, will soon have a library of its own Residents and RWA members in the space allotted for the library in the community centre

The Sector 46 RWA has decided to give its residents something they sorely miss in the city – a library. To be maintained and managed by the RWA, the library is being planned in the sector’s community centre and will cater to all age groups.

The RWA has earmarked an area of 18x25 ft in the community centre for the library.

“We will set up six racks that are 3 feet wide and 6 feet tall, and cost Rs 15000 each. Along with this, furniture such as centre tables, chairs and a reception table will also be arranged,” said Raj Kumar, president of the RWA.

“We plan to include all kinds of books in the library, from academic ones on maths, science, history and English, to titles by Swami Vivekananda and APJ Abdul Kalam,” he added.

“Since Gurgaon doesn’t have a library, many of us now have to travel to Delhi to visit one. But now we can have access to one right inside the sector premises,” said Karamvir Yadav, a resident of Sector 46.

Manav Rachna International School; Narender Yadav, president of Greenwood City; Naresh Bhardwaj, a resident of Sector 38; and Pankaj Goyal, a resident of Sector 46, are all donating books to the library.

The RWA, on its part, is working hard to set it up as soon as possible. It says there may be no memberships initially but the idea of taking books away for a certain period of time will be explored.
